i did all four endings. finished it recently, and god it took a lot out of me. ten more trophies and i get a platinum.
i never thought i would see the day where i accepted a wii game. as you all know, i don’t consider the wii an actual system. sure, i know the tech specs. sure, i understand the business side of it. then there’s the issues of how it helps people. blah blah blah times infinity.
do i care about any of that horseshit? no.
when little_nerdxo bought her system, i rolled my eyes. i thought it was such a waste of time. she’s been casually winding her way through some zelda title, and occasionally mixes it up with wii resort and some other low-key stuff. all in all, i have been unimpressed.
then she started playing rabbids a few months ago. it had the right amount of ridiculous to it, and it is refreshing to play something like this after the skill, gore and dexterity my other games demand. i got pulled into it, putting in a few hours before fallout: new vegas dropped. then when christmas came, i got her a pile of rabbids games, plus some merch i found while on a trip to montreal.
the other day, captain adventure and i were in blockbuster when i did the unthinkable: i bought a rabbids action figure. now it’s on the shelf with my other little figures – and i am not ashamed of my love. rabbids are everywhere, it seems.
in fact, i kind of have a new respect for the wii. WHOA! MIRACLED!
very difficult to concentrate when stuff like this happens. i was building a facebook app the other day [pleased AND dismayed this rolls so easily off my tongue now] and this popped up.
like the title suggests, this is a preview of uncharted 3. kind of an awesome video, showcasing drake’s new moves and junk. interestingly enough, the AI has gotten better too. the voiceover is AWFUL, but worth the watch.
in other news, i am playing through fallout: new vegas still. i am heartbroken to report that i think that veronica girl has glitched – can’t seem to recruit her.
damn it, i am sick of wikipedia, wikimedia and even that creepy bastard from wikileaks. make your own goddamn fortune – stop begging. although in that vein, i want money too. it’s for an equally noble cause: video games.
i have mentioned before that i suspect my ps3 is on its last legs. usually, it just freezes with fallout. or fallout: new vegas. lately though, it’s been freezing with other games too. lego harry potter, and even naughty bear. it’s been making some weird sounds as well, namely sounding like it’s going to take off and go back to the mothership. the other day, i was smugly comparing my trophies to others on my list when the unthinkable happened: it FROZE.
my only resolution this year? buy another ps3. ideally with donated funds*. what? you won’t contribute? gasp! oh sure, it’s all fun and games until an internet meme pokes jimmy wales in the eye.
oh ps3. don’t die. you have so many friends who love you. it’s not your time!!
* i am not actually soliciting funds.
collectors edition, i must say, are a mixed bag. unless you buy online, video game merch is few and far between. i am sorry, but even i am only willing to possess so many action figures. i am a little too old for mario character plushies – the boyfriends are patient people, but one can only tolerate so much.
this is why i used to love collectors editions. you always used to get a ton of shit from them. stardust entertainment was closing its scarborough toronto location about a year ago, so captainadventure and i booked it down there and bought a lot of shit. i scored the grand theft auto 4 collector edition, as well as the fallout 3 one. there’s some good shit in those two. then there was the assassin’s creed 2 one. not bad. action figure, metal tin, book, making of, yeah not bad.
i have also gotten a few others. maybe it is just me, but i am noticing the quality falling. the god of war collector’s edition… well, it wasn’t bad. plastic box, some art books, a dvd ‘making of’ thing… in retrospect, i could have left it on the shelf. the fallout: new vegas collector edition. pack of cards, and some poker chips? meh. maybe i indulge myself too often.
the other day, i got the assassin’s creed: brotherhood collector’s edition. i was so excited about it, as well you all may remember. i haven’t played it yet, but the collector’s edition? the stuff you get with it is a pile of shit.
– art book. but it’s not so much art as it is so much the same shit you can can see anywhere else
– map poster
– dvd chronicling the development process
– a free bag of yawns
the crowning jewel in this clusterfuck is a jack-in-the-box. it is such shitty quality that i am rendered almost speechless. i opened it, and met by a plastic-smelling figure. good times. i struggled with the lid for five minutes to close it. then i showed little_nerdxo. same difficulty, although we had a good giggle over it, it was another struggle to get the lid back on. then we played it again.
its fucking arm broke.
obviously, i’m not going to return it to ebgames. they’d want the whole thing back, and lugging this piece of shit across toronto is just not something i am interested in doing.
what i am interested in doing is being less blinded by my own greed next time.
hahah a short post today, my friends. am too busy with fallout: new vegas to bother myself with writing. jokes. i love you all. anyway, i will never tire of glitch moments in gaming. here’s a great collection of 10 crazy video game moments from our friends in germany.
